For the better part of Monday, upcoming Kenyan comedian David Oyando, popularly known as “Mulamwah” watched on as ruthless trolls from the infamous Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) gang descended upon him and his craft, critiquing it for its apparent poor quality.
The conversation was sparked moments after videos of a fellow comedian “Flaqo Raz” made rounds on various social media platforms.
In some of the comments, netizens expressed that they preferred funny skits made by Flaqo Raz to Mulamwah’s videos.
This evening, the Kakamega-bred artist decided enough is enough and took to his social media accounts to pour out his heart in the hope that it might touch the troll’s cold hearts and get them to back off his life.
First up was a video where he sadly looks on as his trademark comedy identity shirt lights up in flames – a gesture that he has prematurely hang-up his entertainment boots.
At some point, he breaks down into tears.
The clip was followed by a long paragraph, where the comedian seems to surrender to the trolls, saying he hopes they are happy now that they have crushed his self-esteem.
Further crying out, Mulamwah revealed to the public that his girlfriend Carol lost her three-month-old pregnancy due to stress from cyberbullies.
‘”I once posted Carol Sonnie while in a hospital bed, we had just lost our baby at 3 months gestation following stress after being trolled online…” read part of the post.

You guys need to leave Mulamwah alone. For reals. Some of you've been coming at him for a long time & it's not funny. Mulamwah has his shortcomings but some of you on this app are making it entirely difficult for him to even be here. You frustrate him daily & Laugh while at it.
